Beppe Papadopulo insists he's not chasing Edy Reja's job at flagging Napoli.

The former Lecce, Palermo and Lazio coach said: "Napoli is experiencing a negative period.

"Looking from the outside, however, I have great solidarity with my friend Edy Reja, who is going through a difficult time and I hope he comes out of it as soon as possible."
